If you attach a battery grip to some cameras, perhaps they would also allow the use of AA batteries? I think this may be the case for at least the Canon 30D (because I just saw one).

I believe the Nikon's D200 and D80's camera grip allows usage of AA batteries (6pcs).

Nikon D70 too.

Li-ion batteries usually comes with customised circuitry that help the camera to determine more accurately the amount of charge left in the batteries.

i think the reason why the thread starter ask this question abt AA batteries is very simple. AA batteries are much cheaper than the li-ion ones.... $90 for a EN-L3 =_=

i considered that before too... anyway, to threadstarter: dslr that can use battery grip can take AA batts..

I believe the D70 battery holder is meant for CR2 and not AA

I myself also prefer cams powered by AA batteries. Because it is very flexible, some time the main battery flat, still can just go and buy cheap AA batteries from any small shop to find back up ones..

Problem is.... AA batteries run down much faster than Li-on. And carrying them is a real PITA.

Ask those who have to carry 8 or 16 AA, esp for wedding shoots... :sweat:
